Watercolor paint is definitely an interesting medium.

How to use watercolor paint.For a long time I have been meaning to get into watercolor paint and try it out, recently I finally decided to teach myself how to use watercolor paint! I have been experimenting with it a lot lately.

It started when I was going through some of my art supplies and eventually came to my watercolor stuff. Around that same time I started seeing a TON of watercolor work all over the internet. Some of my friends also said they had been working on watercolor recently.

I had done little bits of it in the past but never really learned it. So I started searching things like “how to use watercolor paint” or “watercolor tips and techniques”. I found some great information and started painting.

Miku Hatsune.I still need up update my deviantART but the first thing I painted was the character Miku, or Hatsune Miku. I don’t draw humans often but I gave it a shot. After finishing the sketch and transferring it to my watercolor paper, I began painting, the first thing I painted was her blueish-teal hair. I didn’t have many of the right colors so I had to mix the colors to get what I wanted. The hair color didn’t work out but I was very proud of my skin tone!

Later on I’ll update with a picture of my painting or at least link to my deviantART page with it.

Anyways, as you could imagine, a how to use watercolor paint guide on mixing colors would have been nice but I made it thought. lol

I ended up outlining that one in black Prismacolor Verithin pencil to define the lines a bit. After that though, I decided I wanted a more line-less painting, like watercolor usually is. I have a small avocado tree sitting on the corner of my desk so I decided to paint that.

I quickly sketched it out and started experimenting with my greens, it definitely was different from painting a character! But it also definitely was good practice, and for being new to watercolor I am quite happy with it.

Of course I couldn’t stop there, I itched for more experimentation with looking into how to use watercolor paint. So I decided to try a drawing outlined in pen, like my typical drawings are, but rather than coloring it with something such as markers, I would paint it with watercolor.

Usually you see watercolor that doesn’t have defined lines and has a much looser, almost abstract feel. I decided to use my fursona, Foxfur, in this painting. It isn’t quite complete but so far what I have done is painted a quick, multi-color wash for the background and then painted in most of his hair, fur, and clothing. I still need to finish some details such as his nose and then touch up the wash.

Again, I’ll update when I have all these paintings up!

If you don’t already use it, I would definitely recommend learning how to use watercolor paint!
